I am trying to install an IDE drive into an old laptop. Laptop had a Fujitsu MHS2040at 40gb drive in it, new one is a Fujitsu MHV2080at 80gb.

I get to the BIOS page and the new hard drive is recognised but I can't get any further.

I have the same exact problem. Doing a BIOS hard drive test works fine. When trying to install a new operating system the setup is not able to partition the drive. I have to investigate further.
